Small room that seemed neglected

Stayed there 2 nights. Had problems with water leaking from the fridge and a room safe that didn't lock. Were moved to another room on our request. Still had problems with the safe. Once batteries were changed safe worked okay. Rooms were small but comfortable. Bathroom had some mould. Staff spoke English well and were helpful in attending to our problems. Location is excellent. Don't think I would stay there again.

What a dump

The only positive thing about this hotel was the location and the wireless connection in the room. The place was old and run down; the carpeting was coming up all over the place; it was dirty and depressing...I would never go there again unless they renovated it and hired less harried staff.

Athens Cypria Hotel

The hotel was good. The cab driver couldn't find it, so we were dropped off and left on our own. We found it after asking three different places for directions. The staff wasn't all that friendly in comparison to other hotels we stayed at in Athens. Great location though. Close to shopping and the hotel was clean. I would probably spend the money on a different hotel next time though, just based on the staff not being that friendly.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Catch a cab to and from Syntagma Square and map out the hotel's location. It's easier to walk to than get directions or dropped off somewhere else!!

Convenient Location

Stayed 2 nights (August 25th & 26th). Great locaton for those who intend to move around with public transport as the Airport Bus X95 stops at a bus-stop not far from Ermou Street, major shopping street. Syntagma Square is just opposite Ermou Street and there is a metro station plus the tram station is just nearby. This bus-stop is also the stop for the Athens City Tour Hop-On & Hop-Off service. Many places of interest, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The reception was also very helpful during my stay and I would say, it is value for money due to its location to save on other means of transportation to get around. It only cost Euro 5 form the airport via public bus and the main bus stop going back to the airport is also just a stone throw away from Ermou Street or just the next stop after the latter, still within the Syntagma Square. However, I did not really see the hote facade as shown in the picture above; maybe this is an old picture.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Landmark - Mcdonald's is at the right-hand side of the Ermou Street entarnce. As Ermou Street is only for pedestrian walk while Diomias is a narrow lane on your right with no pass through traffic except for the street that ran parallel with Ermou Street on the right. So for those who opt to take the public transport may need to walk about 2 - 3 junctions from the entrance of Ermou Street to get to the hotel. The hotel is located at the lane where there is a corner shop that sells delicious chocolates with Haagen Dazs literally behind this gourmet.It seems some taxis did not even know the way. I was lucky to be able to locate this hotel quite easily with the helpful locals who not only showed the way but even called the hotel to confirm that I was on the right track.

Family vacation

The best feature of the Athens Cypria is the location!! The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with a variety for different tastes. The rooms were small (and the elevator smaller) but it was fine for our needs. We stayed in three different rooms during our vacation. Our last room on the first floor did not have a balcony or view which was disappointing but the others were good. I would probably stay again if in town.

Athens Cypria Review

The Athens Cypria is in a great location, once you find it. It is loacted right in Syntagma Square and is a convenient walk to the Acropolis and Plaka. We found the hotel to be pleasant enough, but the location was the highlight. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was quite nice even though you had to walk through the smoking area to get to it. They do not have any non-smoking rooms, but the room we had was not a problem. The bathroom was a good size with a good tub and shower. We enjoyed our stay here, but would have preferred softer beds. The location really makes this hotel a good value for the $$ spent.

Decent place, good location

========================================================================================================================================================================================================================================================= ============================================================================================================================================================================The hotel was clean and the location was convenient. Some staff were very pleasant and helpful some were not. The beds were uncomfortable but clean. Furniture was old and scratched up - I had better in rooms on the Greek islands for a lot less cost.

Great breakfast!

The steps between the check-in desk & the elevator were not roller suitcase friendly & the hallways didn't inspire much confidence but the rooms are nice! A/C works, TV in room, shower is tiny but refrigerator & safe were nice amenities. Great breakfast!

Good value and location

I did not spend a lot of time at the hotel because I had a really early flight back to the US. The location was good, close to shopping and Singtagma square, room was clean, and good choice for the price.
